Data Protection For Nutanix AHV Based VMs

Updated 2017-10-05Data Protection for Nutanix AHV Based VMs Version 1.1 released


I have seen a lot of requests regarding data protection options for Nutanix AHV (formerly known as Acropolis Hypervisor) based VM and i’m happy to let you know that a tech note i have put together covering this has been released.

The technical note provides an overview of available virtual machine (VM) data protection options when using AHV on Acropolis and they can be divided into the three major categories covered in this document:

  • Instant recovery
  • Backup and recovery
  • Archive

The instant recovery,  backup and recovery sections include both the creation of data restore points and how to use them. The archive option only includes the creation of the data restore points.

Nutanix constantly evolves and builds new services and integrations with third-party vendors meaning the document will be updated as additional VM data protection options for AHV are available.
